Tiny houses seem to be all the rage these days. Anytime I go online to surf the news, I regularly see stories about how young folks are living in tiny homes and as such have no or a very low mortgage. These folks are keeping expenses low which makes sense in an era where the cost of living is so expensive. In addition, some folks opt for a tiny home because they want the opportunity to travel more or have a simpler and less stressful lifestyle. I can't blame them for that. There is a whole tiny home community out there and folks who partake in this community appear to be very happy.
